And many debates that we want to initiate with "Guter Rat" (Good Council): What do we do with unequally distributed wealth? How do we change the structures of our distribution system?

The Council
Who is behind it?
The Initiator
Marlene Engelhorn
Marlene Engelhorn (31) lives and works in Vienna. Since spring 2021, she has been active in the public sphere on the issues of tax and distributional justice. In June 2021, she founded taxmenow with other wealthy people to campaign for tax justice in the D-A-CH region. In fall 2022, her book "Geld" was published by Kremayr&Scheriau. The idea of using a citizens' council for the redistribution of their wealth so that it happens democratically developed along with the public relations work. This became, step by step and as a team: the Good Council.

Guter Rat (Good Council) is independent of political parties and interest groups. It is privately financed by Marlene Engelhorn. Just like the work of the people who make Guter Rat (Good Council) possible.
